    I don't know, I find the mystery kind of intriguing.

    I know nothing about you, but if you have affiars like newt, you can't value it. Same with Clinton or anyone else.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    OTOH, we know for a fact that Gingrich accepted $1.6 million from Freddie Mac, and if you believe he was paid $1.6 million for "historian services" I've got some swamp land I'd like to sell you.
    Ditto for if you believe the Obama administration gave hundreds of millions for the reason they wanted electric cars.

    Not really. He was booted out as Speaker of the House for ethics violations. He lies like a rug. I think character has a lot to do with it. He's also been pointed out as siding with some Libs on some issues, so, since when do cons accept Lib policies? When they think that's all they've got left?

    Do you know what the ethics violation charge was? Why don't you explain it to us?

    I think the IRS later declared he was in the right legally, but I'd have to read up on it again.

    The Democrats don't launch national investigations as to whether someone got a bj in the WH, like Republicans, because Reps are the "family values" party - except when it comes to their own, and when they are desperate, they, all of a sudden don't care about a man's personal life, how many women he exchanges DNA with while married to another.

    What "distinction" are you trying to make?

    The left is getting all pervy about sex, again.
    It would seem a reason to vote against Democrats is they appear intend to make adultery a criminal offense or a legal basis to be banned from holding public office, but ONLY if you got to a Christian church. What other sex-crimes are Democrats going to try to impose?

    Yeah, that was really crappy by the Republicans.

    Maybe Romney should explain it?

    The House imposed the penalty last year after Gingrich acknowledged he gave the ethics committee untrue information and failed to ensure that financing for two projects, including a college course he taught, would not violate federal tax laws. The penalty was to reimburse the ethics committee for added costs it attributed to investigating Gingrich's misleading statements.

    His own Republican peers didn't want him in Congress.

    Wiki:
    He was disciplined in January 1997 by the House of Representatives for an ethics violation. Following a poor Republican showing in the 1998 Congressional election, Gingrich announced his resignation (taking effect on January 3, 1999) from the House on November 5, 1998, under pressure from his Republican colleagues.

    I think the IRS later declared he was in the right legally, but I'd have to read up on it again.
    The IRS cleared the foundation that aided his course not Gingrich, who was charged for lying and what it cost to investigate his lies.

    If I am not mistaken, specifically it was that his lawyer lied and Gingrich was presumed the reason.

    But that's curious, isn't it? It isn't that Gingrich did wrong but rather alleged he lied through his lawyer.

    The ethical violation of lying?

    I think that disqualified about 99% of politicians, doesn't it?
